As a tutor, you know that some kids just won’t sit still and read. They bounce. They fidget. They doodle. If you are a teacher, a tutor or a parent, you know what a challenge it can be to focus a child that needs to move. These active learners can benefit from strategies that allow them to be active but focused. By using games, tools and adjusting to the needs of these wiggly ones, you can help them learn. Calgary Reads has developed a new video to help tutors help their young readers. We’ve also created a handy accompanying document that you can print off and take with you to your next tutoring session, or use to follow along with the video. To watch this new video and print off the document, click here or find it later by clicking on the Reading Tips tab on our homepage and then click on Strategies for Active Learners on the right side of your screen.
If you have completed 6 – 8 tutoring sessions, we would love to see you again for Level 2 Tutor Training. Level 2 Tutor Training is a great chance to refine your skills as a tutor, learn new activities and strategies and to connect with other tutors. We have just added some new April training dates on our website.
If you are a devoted tutor and you don’t have a Calgary Reads book bag, please drop into our Valley View School office and pick one up. We’d love to see you!
